The fami­ly busi­ness “Ideen­gärt­ne­rei Mül­ler” has spe­cia­li­zed in the sus­tainab­le pro­duc­tion of orna­men­tal plants, vege­ta­ble seed­lings, herbs and medi­ci­nal plants. The cer­ti­fied orga­nic farm bene­fits from the expe­ri­ence of the last three genera­ti­ons, but also from the open­ness to new tech­no­lo­gies. The Ide­as Gar­de­ner Mül­ler is one of the pioneers in the field of LED-based plant ligh­t­ing. In clo­se coope­ra­ti­on with SANSOL, ligh­t­ing solu­ti­ons have been used very suc­cess­ful­ly and in a varie­ty of forms in pro­duc­tion for several years. “The focu­sed use of light mea­sur­a­b­ly streng­t­hens the plants and fights pest infe­sta­ti­on in a com­ple­te­ly natu­ral way,” sta­tes Georg Mül­ler. Through the suc­cess­ful use of modern LED tech­no­lo­gy, Georg Mül­ler quick­ly beca­me awa­re of how gre­at the influ­ence of high-qua­li­ty light is on plants. In addi­ti­on to cli­ma­tic con­di­ti­ons and nut­ri­ents, the light fac­tor is an essen­ti­al cri­ter­ion for healt­hy plant deve­lo­p­ment and for a signi­fi­cant incre­a­se in qua­li­ty and yield.

Repla­cing the tra­di­tio­nal assi­mi­la­ti­on ligh­t­ing with the care­ful­ly plan­ned LED ligh­t­ing solu­ti­on when cul­ti­vat­ing the Thun­ber­gia mother plants resul­ted in:
• Reduc­tion of ener­gy expen­dit­u­re by 40% with hig­her light values in the culture.
• opti­mi­zed homo­ge­ne­ous illumination
• Incre­a­se in cut­ting yield and qua­li­ty with lower ope­ra­ting costs.
• Easier cultivation work and pro­blem-free visu­al con­trol, sin­ce the natu­ral colo­ring of the plants is not distorted.
• Ear­ly detec­tion of health sta­tus and pest pressure.

In the roo­ting pha­se, LED ligh­t­ing shows clear advan­ta­ges over tra­di­tio­nal light sources:
• shor­ter roo­ting times
• Incre­a­se in pro­fi­ta­bi­li­ty through redu­ced fail­u­re rate
• more robust and com­pact cuttings.
• space-saving roo­ting in mul­ti-level sys­tems (with the com­pact SANSOL FLEX series)

The coor­di­na­ted light com­po­si­ti­on of the LED light incre­a­ses the yield in orna­men­tal plant production:
• More uni­form and more pro­noun­ced flowe­ring in the culture
• Flowe­ring can be acce­le­ra­ted pro­mo­tes natu­ral colouration
• Com­pe­ti­ti­ve advan­ta­ge without sacri­fi­cing qua­li­ty and with an attrac­ti­ve margin

Light also pays off at the front of the end customer’s display:
• Colors con­vin­ce in their natu­ral sple­ndor and intensity
• opti­mi­zed for plant development
• light color that is plea­sant for the human eye
• Incre­a­sed down­ti­mes in the sales area

Pro­fes­sio­nal light also bene­fits bene­fi­cial insects:
• Incre­a­sed effec­ti­ve­ness / acti­vi­ty of bene­fi­cial insects through low tem­pe­ra­tu­re input and broad spectrum
• exten­ded ser­vice life of bene­fi­cial insects
• Stress reduc­tion through the eli­mi­na­ti­on of infra­red radia­ti­on and a balan­ced com­po­si­ti­on of light.
